Pearth Organic Kitchen is all about healthy, wholesome food. I was meeting my lovely friend Kimmie for brunch and I thought Pearth would be well, perthfect (sorry, I just couldn’t resist!). For starters, I can never have too much healthy food, as long as it’s tasty anyway. Also Kimmie is gluten and dairy intolerant, so I thought they would have lots of menu options for her and they did. Pearth also caters well for vegans and vegetarians.

We met in the small Cambridge Street café, grabbing the last table. First up we enjoyed some good coffees. My flat white is made from Fiori organic coffee beans and organic milk from The Grumpy Farmer.IMG_3866

I just HAD to chose the Perthfect Parmesan eggs – I can’t imagine why! The scrambled parmesan eggs ($22) were wonderfully creamy, on top of a slice of thickly cut sourdough toast. On the side was avocado, wilted kale and a tasty house made tomato relish. I really enjoyed this.IMG_3871

Kim loved her smashed avocado with house made hummus, $17. Sprinkled with dukkah and a poached egg on the side. She swapped the sourdough for gluten free bread by Strange Grains. Kimmie enjoyed this, particularly the delicious hummus.  IMG_3867

I love that Pearth don’t use processed products or refined sugars in their cooking. For me, having a guilt free brunch is great, especially as I’m sensitive to some food additives and preservatives. I like knowing what I’ve got on my fork is going to 100% nourish my body. You don’t have to be a health food nut to enjoy Pearth Organic Kitchen – just a tasty food addict like me! IMG_3876

 

 

Hylin – West Leederville

Note to self… under no circumstances go to a crazy popular brunch spot when ravenously hungry. I made this error on a crisp Saturday morning – thinking it was a fab idea to check out Hylin – a new-ish café, opposite the train line in West Leederville. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to queue for a few minutes – and Ren, Little Chef and I did just that…IMG_9416

We sat on the bench, waiting for my name to be called off the list, happily chatting away. Ren mentioned that our supposed 15 min wait had turned into over 30 mins and on further investigation it turned out that there had been someone else moonlighting as “Amanda” and stole out table! Completely no fault of Hylin and our friendly waiter was very apologetic.

IMG_9398We ordered a couple of drinks and a cronut for Little Chef. The croissant-addict was quick to agree to being my guinea pig once he found out that a cronut is a doughnut-croissant hybrid. A couple of years ago when Cronuts first came onto the Aussie food scene only a handful of bakeries in WA had made them. I tried a cronut at Prague Bakery at Kingsley Village Shopping Centre  but wasn’t too impressed, as it was over cooked and frankly shouldn’t have been sold. LC’s cronut was the perfect specimen – light, fluffy and filled with salted caramel.

IMG_9403Little Chef also loved his babycino – which got two thumbs up for extra marshmallows!

IMG_9407Ren had a Micrology Roasters coffee and I ordered a freshly made juice. I’d not had the combo of strawberry, melon, mint and pineapple before and boy was it good!strawb pinapp melon mint

By the time our food arrived I almost inhaled it! I had smoked bacon and roasted field mushroom on ciabatta ($16.50). I also added a poached egg on the side. The dish was cooked well, was very tasty and served with a rocket and corn salad. The crushed pea smear was delicious too.IMG_9410

Since it was pretty much lunch time, Ren chose the open street tacos ($14.50). Soft flour tortillas were stuffed full of Cajun chicken breast, slaw and a mango salsa on the side. Though Ren said the tacos were tasty, she was a bit sceptical that the dish was worth the 1.5hour wait (from arrival at the café to the dish arriving on our table).IMG_9414

All in all Hylin is a good café, I’d certainly return – though I think I’ll wait till the hype dies down a bit!IMG_9424IMG_9418
